I had been waiting with bated breath for a month for this event: “Taste of the Holidays” at Sam’s Club. Maybe you think that is prosiac, but when I am on a cut-my-circulation-off tight budget but want to breath life into an up upcoming (dreaded) holiday through food, a taste testing of ‘possibilities,’ with little effort and lots of pizzazz, kind of rocks my world.
But…”it” came back.

The scene ends, like turning off the TV. My eyes open and I realize it was just anther dream devoid of Archie, but talking about him, sigh. The room is dark. I check my phone, 5.5 hrs since struggling into slumber. That’s a good night, but my eyelids are heavy.

This week has been a rough week. Sleep has been eluding me at night and getting out of bed was getting harder with each morning. Today for the first time I reflect on why.

When you pray, don’t babble on and on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again. Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him! Matthew 6:7-8
Scripted prayers are what heavenly Dad wanted to talk to me about today. Comfy chair, coffee in hand, and a willing spirit, open to change. Ready.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
Today heavenly Dad is explaining that “all things” mean even the most basic: breathing, sliding off of the bed, and living life.

“While we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,” Titus 2:13
One of my biggest struggles is waiting to go “home” with hope. How do you do that when you are unsure what there is to hope for, except the “forever” of heaven? Everything else is just chaff in the wind, here today, gone tomorrow.

What I found was that there was an issue with this page when it was published (I think) one month ago. Hopefully, republishing it will correct the error. I apologize to anyone who has already read it…or maybe our heavenly Dad needed this to be revisited.
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord” Colossians 3:23(NIV)
As I am praying my way through this journey of where I fit in, I continue to see couples not realizing that they are writing the pages of their love story…with every word spoken.

Psalms 68:5-6 “Father of orphans, champion of widows, is God in his holy house. God makes homes for the homeless, leads prisoners to freedom but leaves rebels to rot in hell.”
I am still trying to catch up. Last year when Archie thought he threw out his back, all of our house repairs were put on “hold.” Now it’s been nearly a year and it’s time to “put the call through.”

“ Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other” Galatians 5:26
I hate the thought of envying someone or being envious. I am throwing off the false pretenses associated with what Christians are suppose to be like and getting real. The truth is: I do and often am.
